Dollarizing 

People buy for one of two reasons: to feel good or to solve a problem. "Feel good" is measured in intangible values, such as the stylish fit of a sweater, the taste of a fine wine or the tight cornering of a new sports car. The solution to a problem represents either the avoidance of loss (e.g., reduced warranty costs) or the chance for gain (e.g., improved sales). Both the avoidance of loss and the chance for gain can be measured in dollars and cents, or "Dollarized." Dollarizing is the act of assessing the differences between your products and competitive products and calculating the financial impact those differences have on your customer. Dollarization has been successfully used to dollarize products ranging from a $1 million pharmaceutical centrifuge to a 2¢ o-ring. It has also been used to fend-off low-price competitors, to sharpen advertising claims, to set pricing and to segment customers. Whether you sell medical devices to hospitals, capital equipment to heavy industry, or pesticides to farmers, you will improve your sales, margins and marketing effectiveness by dollarizing your product's actual value.

Salesforce Efficiency

Jeffrey Fox at Fox & Co. has developed proprietary approaches to measuring and maximizing salesforce efficiency. Sales managers can learn, quantitatively, how their best people invest available selling time, including a measurement of expected sales dollars per sales call. This knowledge is used to improve the efficiency of others in the salesforce. Simple tools can tell the sales manager what the expected outcome would be of adding one additional sales person, of getting each salesperson to make one more call per week, and so on. Fox & Co. also develops, in conjunction with its customized selling skills training programs, sales resource allocation models that help salespeople properly allocate their selling time. The model addresses several common sales planning flaws: Salespeople call on too many accounts, and therefore don't have enough time to call on those accounts often enough to be successful. Salespeople don't spend enough time with the accounts that provide the best opportunity for growth. Salespeople spend too much time calling on low potential accounts. Salespeople don't realize how precious few sales calls they have to invest each year.

Strategy Development

Fox & Co. clients face a host of business situations that require a fresh assessment of marketing strategy and the development and refinement of strategies to optimize future growth. Some of the catalysts include sales growth stagnation, market share slippage, the emergence of new competitive threats, pre-acquisition due diligence, post-acquisition integration, and the entry of new management. Fox & Co. addresses all such engagements with a disciplined combination of market research, client input and innovative thinking about crafting strategy.

Training Programs

To help clients improve their sales and marketing effectiveness, Fox & Co. develops customized training programs that improve the productivity of client sales and marketing functions. Specific training areas include value-added selling, sales management, product management, customer service, and case study-based strategy seminars. Because each training program is built specifically to address a client's circumstances, content and implementation options are fully flexible.
